I would put my lab against any

Recommended Posts

gundy89

in an eating contest!!!

Last weekend, she got a FULL venison sausage log off the counter and put the whole thing down and a stick of butter. Casing, wrapper, and all remnants!!! This isn't a little 12 inch log either. It was one of those Von Hansen logs that are 2+ feet long and 4 inches across. She was busting at the seams, but wanted her breakfast. Thank god she didn't screw herself up. She ended up puking most of it out in chuncks the size of my hand.

I don't know who the bigger idiot is, me for leaving it out to thaw, or her for actually eating all of it.

I have one at home that I would put up against yours. I was at a weekend long bachelor party Mille Lacs this fall and my wife calls freaking out that he just ate a full pan of piping hot chocolate brownies that my wife and 3 year old niece just made. Our niece let him up stairs and he bee-lined for the kitchen and ate the whole pan in about 30 seconds before my wife even realized what was going on. 5 phone calls to our vet and 5 phone calls to me and 5 ounces of hydrogen peroxide later, he has throwing up to the cheers of my wife and my niece. I wasn't there, but I was on the phone for the play by play. Poor Franky was just trying to sneak a little snack grin.gif Got to love those always opportunistic feeding labs! Take ten minutes to finish a bowl of food when you are waiting for them, but can hammer down a pan of brownies or two feet of sausage in no time flat.

nice stories but can you beat this. my lab ate a whole loaf of wheat bread and never puked. that is not the best one. we were in montana visiting family. i was throwing a rubber ball for my dog the ball was the size of a baseball. she was bringing it back when down the throat it went. i called the vet and they told me i needed to make sure she did not stop eating or drinking. two day later when we were leaving i let her out to go the bathroom and and she took a big dump and her body and digested that ball and i looked like a big polish sausage in a casing. honest to god truth. she is a 100 lb female...

My daughter had a 140 pound Lab wander up to her horse farm this summer and adopt her. She named it Shamu, after the killer whale. They can't break it of counter surfing, so all food must be put up high. It scarfed two loaves of french bread in less time than it takes to write this. It also had eaten its regular meal before. Next morning, giant!! shocked.gif dog droppings. She has him on a diet and he's down to 130.

I had a female lab over to my house that was going to be breed with my black lab Rebel. We had the female dog in the garage in one of those plastic kennels. The female dog broke out of the kennel and then proceded to eat AT LEAST 10 lbs of dog food out of the bag the owner had brought with the dog. She did not bother going through the top opening of the bag either. She ripped through the side of the bag and made a big mess.

The dog was bulging out in all directions. My wife had the best quote though. "I hope Rebel likes fat chicks"!

In Christmas of 2006, my chocolate lab wondered over to the neighbors and decided that it would be a good idea to eat the left overs a 12lb turkey that was sitting outside cooling off. thankfully the neighbors had eaten already and it was de-boned. I assume she ate 9 or 10 lbs of turkey. Needless to say she looked like a whale and was sick for around 10 days....

she has eaten a loaf of bread, 10lb bag of dog food and

she loves to get me up at 6:00 in the morning 7 days a week to get her morning meal and then goes back to sleep.

UPDATE: yesterday my daughter's 140 lb. Lab, Shamu, ate most of a 5 pound bag of whole wheat flour. How hungry does a dog have to be to eat something like that? I think he has issues. tongue.gif

Now that's funny right there.

I laughed so hard when I read these posts. One of our labs, Oscar, really isn't a dog, he is an eating machine. When he was a puppy my wife's brother-in-law left the back doors on his Yukon open and Oscar got in, over the back seat and into the front to eat a ton of dog food. His gut was huge and he spent a better part of the day pooping. He has helped himself to cupcakes cooling on the stove, pulled open a bag of dog food to gorge himself on that, and found many bear bait stations when we have been out in the woods (he eats jelly doughnuts like a trucker). The funny thing is he has managed to stay skinny, 85 lbs. grin.gif

If he wasn't such a good friend/hunting partner the cupcake episode might have really ticked me off grin.gif

Went fishing Christmas eve, got a limit of 3/4 pound crappies that I left in a bucket on the deck.

Big mistake! My 1 year old lab must have been pretty hungry,

because he ate them all, plus all the minnows that were on the deck also.

This past summer I fryed up some fish in a turkey fryer and when I was finished I left the oil outside on the patio to cool. I went to filter it about 2 hours later and found that my pup had eaten/drank all of the oil. It was three gallons of peanut oil crazy.gif. He was fine, but he left one real nasty stain on the carpet where he puked about a gallon or so back up. I hope he learned!

The further adventures of SHAMU!!

On Saturday, my daughter made a batch of bread dough. She had it on the counter to raise and he was able to pull it off and eat it all...including the Saran wrap that was covering it. My daughter is a vet, so she watched him closely for any bad reactions. None. That critter will eat anything. I think we should be worried about the horses and the neighbor kids.

      Do you have any tips for fishing Fish Lake this time of year? I'm gonna try it out in the next few days... Is it typically an early morning, late evening bite or can you get them all day long? Thanks for any info.
    • PRO-V
      Calling them would be your best bet. Maybe you can reserve some on a card.

      starft you off.... https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/lake.html?id=69066000 http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/data/lakemaps/b0537011.pdf Status of the Fishery Ely Lake is located approximately 2 miles SE of the city of Eveleth. This popular lake is highly developed with homes and cabins. There is a small seaplane base and two public swimming beaches also located there. Water clarity is good and large amounts of aquatic vegetation can be found throughout the lake. 

      There is a concrete planked boat ramp and dock located near the NE end of the lake off Cedar Island Drive (CR629) for public access. The parking space is somewhat limited near the ramp. Several private accesses are also present. 

      Thirteen species of fish were sampled during the 2017 survey on Ely Lake. Gill nets, trap nets and night electrofishing were all used to sample the fish community. Small bluegill were common in the gill net catch (34%) and abundant in the trap net catch (57%). Other panfish species including hybrid sunfish, pumpkinseed, green sunfish and black crappie were also sampled in good numbers. Largemouth bass outnumbered smallmouth bass in the 2017 sample. Walleye (16%) contributed to the gill net catch and several were sampled in the trap nets. Yellow perch are present in average amounts and some good sized pike were again sampled during the 2017 survey. 

      Bluegill numbers in 2017 (72.1/trap net) were much higher than the long term average (31.6/trap net) on Ely Lake and greatly above average (7.9/trap net) compared to other similar lakes in the area. The average bluegill sampled was 5.6 inches long and about 6 years old. Approximately 66% of the bluegill sampled with the trap nets were under 6 inches with a maximum size recorded of 8.0 inches. Bluegill sampled with the gill nets had a similar size structure. Approximately 7% of the hybrid sunfish sampled in the trap nets were 8 inches or larger. Several pumpkinseeds were also in this size range. 

      Largemouth bass (92%) and smallmouth bass (8%) were sampled during the night electrofishing effort. The average largemouth sampled was 10.9 inches which is similar to the historic average of 10.6 inches. The biggest largemouth sampled was 18.5 inches. Approximately 33% of the largemouth sampled were 12 inches or larger. The average smallmouth sampled was 9.8 inches which is slightly larger than the historic average (8.4 inches). The largest smallmouth sampled was 16.8 inches long. Approximately 32% of the smallmouth sampled were 12 inches or larger. Largemouth bass were also sampled from the gill nets and trap nets in numbers above average. 

      Walleye numbers in 2017 (6.2/gill net) were similar to the historic average (6.1/gill net) on Ely Lake and slightly above average (5.0/gill net) when compared to other similar area lakes with walleye. The average walleye sampled was 15.5 inches and about 4 years old. Approximately 34% of the walleye sampled were 15 inches or larger up to a maximum of nearly 29 inches. Walleye fingerlings are currently being stocked during even-numbered years and in 2017 approximately 62% of the walleye aged came from years where stocking occurred. 

      Northern pike numbers in 2017 (1.1/gill net) were similar to the historic average (1.3/gill net) and below average (3.2/gill net) compared to other similar area lakes with pike. The average pike sampled was 26.8 inches which is similar to the historic average length of 26.3 inches. The largest pike sampled in 2017 was 35.2 inches long and sampled with a trap net.

      Yes they do. Many resorts are set up for summer usage. Understand you can't use your FH in the storage lots. Only in a summer use lot. You have to pay for it. The cost is in addition to your winter fees. Usually more $ but the season is longer. The county requires the resorts to have bathroom facilities within a certain distance. Mac's Twin Bay has summer lots as do many others. Hunter's Point is another. Doubt Brandt's is set up for summer.

      Sweet! Heading back up tonight through the weekend. Bringing the wife and little one this time instead of my buddies, hopefully the weather cooperates.

      Heading up Sat morning and will be looking for Shiners. Anyone know if the Gateway and/or Kab Outdoors have them in stock??    Thanks for the input.

      Hi Guys & Gals, My brother in law recently purchased a property on Ely Lake. All the boys are invited up this year on Memorial. Unfortunately nobody in the family has been on the lake before. I thought I would reach out to the pros here on the forum to see if anyone would be willing to give us a few tips on fishing this lake. Thanks in advance, Dan
    • crappieslapper
      Hey Forum, My brother in law just purchased on Ely Lake. Memorial weekend will be the first time on lake. Wondering if anyone has some experience/tips they would be willing to offer the Ely lake rookies. Thanks so much. Dan
    • huntnfish
      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.
